DLC: Xbox 360 vs PS3

A couple of years ago, no one would have understood that title; not because the consoles didn't exist, but because DLC was anything but "Downloadable Content". We PC gamers are old time users of the "DLC", after all we've always had mods, map packs, expansions, patches and the sort; however the console crowd is relatively new to this and how could they not be since up until this generation no console had a proper hard drive to speak of. So both the Xbox 360 and the PS3's gamers enjoy DLC in some form, however as of late(okay maybe since last year) Microsoft has been securing DLC for Xbox 360 multi platform games with large sums of money in order to gain the competitive edge. Sony's response? Basically "hey it's your game, if you want to sell less in one platform; it's your problem". As bad as that sounds, should console manufactures have to really pay for DLC? Do we want that market to exist? Is any party thinking on us, the gamers? Should we pay for it?
